Volunteers needed for habitat restoration planting.


The White Clay Creek Wild and Scenic Rivers Program needs 40 volunteers to plant wildflowers, trees, and shrubs along the banks of the White Clay Creek in the historic Landenberg village. These plants will work to capture, infiltrate and treat polluted run off as well as create habitat for wildlife. Volunteers will learn about native plants and how they help to clean our water and also get a sneak peek at the new Landenberg Junction Trailhead!

Volunteers should wear old clothes and sneakers (or boots) that you wouldn't mind getting dirty and wet. If you own large shovels or garden trowels and gardening gloves please bring them. There will be a limited number of gloves and shovels supplied on-site. The event will occur at the new trail head next to the historic Landenberg Bridge, near the intersection of Penn Green Road and Landenberg Road. Parking will be available at the Landenberg United Methodist Church parking lot off of Penn Green Road (click here for map).  The entrance to the planting site is on the right after you cross the bridge and will be clearly marked.  An email with more specific information and a map will be sent to registered volunteers a few days prior to the event.
